PLAINFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — One infant was killed in a car crash Saturday afternoon when a tractor trailer hit a car traveling in the right lane.

The tractor trailer operated by 44-year-old Edward Stratton, continued to the right, left the road and ended up down an embankment where it came to a stop in a wooded area.
Traffic was re-routed for seven hours while the accident was being investigated.
Bedard and Dube were both transported to the William Backus Emergency Center and Dube pronounced dead shortly after. Bedard was treated for non-life threatening injuries and was released.
The accident is still under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact Trooper Teft at 860-779-4900.
